Launched in February 2013, Alif Ailaan is a campaign that seeks to put education at the front and centre of public discourse in Pakistan. Our goal is to get every Pakistani girl and boy into school, keep them learning and ensure that they receive a quality education.
The campaign is run by a small team of media and strategic communications specialists with experience from across the world. We are funded by the UK Department for International Development.Frequently Asked Questions
